DescriptionNorth America has a vast system of hardwood and softwood forests, and the wood harvested from this resource is widely used in many applications. These include lumber and other building materials, furniture, crating, containers, pallets and other consumer goods. This wide array of wood products generates not only a large amount of industrial wood by-product during the manufacturing process, but it also productes a large amount of wood waste when these products are disposed at teh end of their useful lives.
